BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:25 A.M.) – The jihadist rebels of Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham have reportedly captured the village of Khattab in northern Hama this morning after securing the key town of Souran last night.

According to a military source in Hama, the Syrian Arab Army’s 11th Tank Division was forced to mostly withdraw from Khattab last night after they failed to reenter Souran.

Following the loss of Khattab, the jihadist rebels turned their attention to the Mhardeh area, where they launched several attacks against the National Defense Forces (NDF) there.

A military source inside of Mhardeh told Al-Masdar that the Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham jihadists captured several points northeast of the city this morning.

The Syrian Arab Army has launched a counter-attack to recover the points around Souran; however, no gains have been reported to Al-Masdar yet.

They are not Jihadi rebels. They are US/Saudi/Israeli foreign mercenary terror squads, trained, armed and supported by the US and paid by the Saudi and Qatari tyrannies.

Attack on Hama is to pressure assed to call off the amazingly successful Tigers operations in the east, and around Palmyra, so dash can recuperate, and stop Syrians from recovering the most strategic land in the east. DZ is still the most strategically important city, at present. Should Damascus actually do that, they will be doing precisely what their enemy wants. As far for Souran and collection of villages around it; let them go. Don’t waste Tigers’ lives on that, because local units will loose it in a few hour for the 3rd time.
